Come to See D. W. Griffith's
Sweet As-Honey-Suckle Romance
(A Page From the Book of Life)
D. W. Griffith hns now spun a romances
aromicl home-spun humanity, and ho has
found a classic in its folds a vivid, tense,
humorous story of "tho folks at home" in
our own sunny Southland,
A Romance of Happy Valley" is a
sweet-as-honcysucklc romance of a youth
and maid who lived in the slumbering toll
road region oftho Mississippi Valley.
D. W. Griffith has painted his charac
tors as if in soft pastels. The sweet, trust
ing nature of the girl Lillian Gish he has
showed in delicate shades of iridescent pink.
The boundless ambition of the boy Robert
Ilarron he has touched with fiery red.
The boy's insatiable desire to "make
good," to be a "real man" in TIER eyes,
prompts him to leave home, promising to
come back on the ytiuth day. (Just like a
kid, isn't it?) All that remained to remind
her of him was an old weather-beaten coat
he had put on her scare-crow pole.
The year comes and goes. Another
year. And another and another, until eight
have passed. Then comes the tvpical Grif
fith climax. No! You DON'T know what
it is! You can't even guess, because D. V.
Griffith always gives you something unexpected.
